Australian Makers

Go ‘behind the scenes’ into factories, workshops and farms around the country to hear Australian Makers share their unique stories.

Seasol International

Meet Chief Executive, Alick Osborne and Owner, Lisa Boyd; the Aussie Makers behind Seasol International. A local business producing over 10 million litres of Seasol seaweed solution a year – an illustrious Aussie Made innovation that has grown to become one of the country’s most cherished gardening products.

Seasol’s mission is to inspire people to change the way they grow their food and the way we all green our landscapes. They achieve this everyday by providing home gardeners and farmers in the agriculture sector with organic liquid seaweed and environmentally friendly fertilisers which are made locally in Australia.

Seasol’s product range is proudly made locally across manufacturing in sites In Victoria, Tasmania and Western Australia, which are distributed right across Australia. Wherever possible, Seasol aims to support Australian companies by buying Aussie products and using them in their manufacturing process.

Seasol’s seaweed solution helps to stimulate strong root growth and beneficial soil micro-organisms, promoting vigorous flowering and fruiting and overall garden health. Whereas Seasol’s PowerFeed dynamic fertiliser and soil improver products contain active liquid composts which improves soil structure, reducing the loss of nutrients in sandy soils and helping to stimulate flowering and fruiting.

The primary ingredient used in Seasol’s natural, but powerful product range is a unique species of kelp called Durvillaea Potatorum that grows in the cold oceans of around north west Tasmania. This species is not only unique to Seasol’s manufacturing process, but it can be only found in southern Australia.

When shoppers buy Australian Made natural plant tonics from businesses like Seasol, they’re not only supporting a cleaner, greener environment here in Australia – they’re helping to create local jobs in Aussie factories and giving back to Australian Makers.

Ugg Since 1974

Meet UGG Since 1974 Directors Todd & Hannah Watts, a third-generation Australian family business handcrafting premium quality Australian sheepskin boots in Queensland, Australia. With more than forty-five years’ experience crafting UGG boots, the UGG Since 1974 heritage dates back to the 1970s, when UGG boots were first innovated in an Australian backyard.

Under the watchful eye of a young sheep classer from the Australian country, it was then that the Ugg Since 1974 bespoke workshop started producing premium quality sheepskin boots and accessories, one piece at a time.

Almost five decades on, their UGG boots continue to be handcrafted from start to finish at their custom built workshop in South East Queensland, where the team works tirelessly to maintain quality workmanship, luxurious comfort and timeless style in each and every pair of UGG boots.

At UGG Since 1974, there are no conveyor belts or mass production of UGG boots. Instead, you’ll find one-of-a-kind leathers, the wooliest of Australian merino sheepskins, and UGG boots being artfully crafted by their talented makers, most of whom have mastered their craft over decades of practice and precision.

UGG Since 1974 Director Todd Watts says:
“I think there’s an appetite for local customers to buy locally made sheepskin boots, they get longevity, they get quality and they get reassurance that what they’re buying will last the test of time”.
